Softonic review

The most popular animation software

What would the Internet be without Flash? The format that changed the World Wide Web, making videos and games available to everyone, built its success on two factors. The first: only one format regardless of the device. The second: software that is accessible and easy to use.

A must-have for animation

Adobe Animate CC (formerly Flash Pro) is easy to use, with a system of layers and a relatively easy to understand timeline. It opens up a world of infinite possibilities for creatives, app and web developers, and game designers.

Adobe Animate CC comes with a limited number of tools for the creation of graphics, but it’s very easy to import content created with Fireworks or Photoshop.

Creating dynamic content is possible thanks to Action Script 3.0, a simplified programming language that is adapted to the Internet. A library of predefined code can make coding easier for beginners. You can also use Flash Builder to generate Action Script.

Adobe Animate CC includes additional features: a framework specifically designed for text, extraction of data from new formats (XML, BIN, XFL), and the possibility to export Flash animations to  more programs.

The animations are more versatile, dynamic, and easier to create than ever before. Adobe Animate CC is an excellent program to create dynamic content that can be played on all media.

In recent updates, a variety of features have been added, including a new motion editor, WebGL for animation, outlines of variable width, as well as interpolation of outlines of variable width, and object cancellation.

Adobe Animate CC also now supports projection files and HTML5 extensions.

All the tutorials and support you need

Adobe Animate CC is marketed for professional users, but also offers many help and support tools to get you started.

All you have to do is find a topic under Learn or Get Support on the Adobe website to access tutorials, articles and projects to help you learn new tricks.

Still a leader in its field

Even if the situation will change in the future, as of today, Flash is still the best software to create dynamic content for the Internet and other platforms. Adobe Animate CC is the cornerstone of this success, as it provides everyone with the tools to create this dynamic content.
